What Godard Said
What Godard Said (2005, 29MB, 5:19 min.)

Two pieces, extraordinary in both ambition & affect,
from filmmaker Helen Park.

It takes a little while, ‘it did for me’ then not only
does the quiet ecstacy of the thing kick in, but your
mouth drops open at how boldly and confidently this
world grows & blossoms from very simple & at first
apparently unpromising material.
Helen Park also maintains a rather good vlog.

from Channel 101.
This video should recieve lots of attention because it is really really
funny. Instead, it made the papers because Bill Cosby’s lawyers
threatened Channel 101 and their video hosting service with
cease and desist letters.

Yoshi Sodeoka of c505, but video, music, both, turn out to
be rather lovely…
